“Brilliant value, great location, lovely facilities, friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

A great newish hostel in the centre of Berwick. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a fantastic 5-night stay.

Only quibbles would be that the kitchen was not checked daily, thus the full bins were not taken out when needed & one blocked sink not taken care of for several days. Also the shared ensuite bathroom was very nice indeed but it was sometimes inconvenient (e.g. first thing in the morning) as it was attached to a 6-bed dorm. Would have been useful to have extra facilities.

However on the whole we had a brilliant stay, would definitely come back, and highly recommend it to others.

I first became a member of the YHA in 1960 and for the next few years I cycled around Britain staying at many hostels. After a 50 year break I have joined again beginning with two nights at Berwick-on-Tweed but this time exchanging my mode of transport from pushbike to motorcycle!
I received a warm welcome on arrival and, after so long out of the 'system', given the necessary advice and assistance to ensure my stay was as comfortable as possible. A room to myself, friendly staff and good food made my stay all the more enjoyable. Importantly there was space available within the confines of the hostel to park my motorcycle (security most important).

Berwick is one of the newest YHA youth hostels, having only opened a few years ago. As a result the accommodation and decoration are the best I've experienced in any hostel. It's also clean and the staff are welcoming. This was out second visit and we'll definitely be back again.

I organised a trip for 22 people to Berwick YHA over the long Easter weekend. I have stayed in lots of hostels and bunkhouses, and this is up there with the best. The rooms are large with a good amount of storage space and clean ensuite bathrooms (with plenty of hot water!). The self catering kitchen is well equipped and large, and the lounge and dining areas are also comfortable. The bistro downstairs is good value, and friends who ate there said that the food was good quality. Breakfasts were great, with plenty of choice and hearty portions. The staff work amazingly hard to keep the place clean and tidy, whilst also running the breakfast service, bistro and hostel bookings. They were always smiling and efficient, even when faced with 22 hungry walkers expecting breakfast early in the morning. I would not hesitate to recommend the hostel to anyone wanting to book great value accommodation in the Berwick area. Thanks to Sion and the team for a fantastic stay!

I spent two nights at the YHA and found it clean, comfortable, safe, and friendly. The staff are all very kind people and helped me make some travel plans. The YHA is very centrally located, just a block from the beautiful river/coastal walk in one direction, and two blocks from the town center in the other. And their breakfast was delicious and really got me started both mornings! The staff also let me store my luggage safely before check in and after check out, no fees. I had a great time!!

Rooms good - we had an en suite, food lovely and the staff were friendly. Well placed for exploring the town as well.
Would definitely recommend it, epsecially the Winterwarmer offer that's on at the moment.
